Its not if its now officially when  !

 

WASHINGTON — Just five months after Washington state and Colorado voted to legalize marijuana for recreational use, a poll released Thursday found that a majority of Americans now agree and say it should not be illegal to smoke the drug.

And, as Attorney General Eric Holder tries to figure out how to respond to the new legalization laws, the poll had more good news for voters in the two states: Sixty percent of Americans say the U.S. government should not enforce federal drug laws in any state that has voted to legalize pot.

The poll found a strong consensus among people of all political persuasions for the federal government not to intervene: 64 percent of those who identified as independents, 59 percent of Democrats and 57 percent of Republicans.

The reason that legalization, or decriminalization, or whatever, is coming is due to two reasons: 1) People are tired of paying billions of dollars for a "drug war" that just produces more problems, and; 2) People are becoming educated to the fact that marijuana's negative effects on people and society have been either fabricated or blown way out of proportion.
